From the cover: “After a brief period of experimentation with large-scale nationalization of industry and finance following the birth of Bangladesh in 1971, successive governments have adopted the orthodox economic policies advocated by aid donors and international agencies. They have in particular tried to promote a ‘green revolution’, raised interest rates, devalued the currency, privatized state enterprises and gradually reduced the size of the public sector. But this book — the most comprehensive study available of the economy of Bangladesh — shows that the incidence of poverty and inequality has continued to be high, social sectors have made little progress and industrial growth has at best been modest.”
